Listen up Gulfport, a town hall meeting taking place this month at the 19th Street Community Center will fill you in on what you need to know before Election Day in November.
This meeting will discuss a few topics at hand regarding the importance of voting and information on those running for elected positions. The meeting also covers voting and race relations and how voting makes a difference in your community.
Jeffrey Hulum III tells News 25 this will inspire the youth to increase the voter turnout. “Because if you teach them while they are young, when they become older, it’s like muscle memory. It’s a stigma amongst our community about people going out to vote, why their vote doesn’t matter. That’s not true. That’s not factual.”
The Men’s Town Hall Meeting takes place September 17th at 6 p.m.
